Sales Agronomists at Sanergy

On Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

About Us: Sanergy is an award-winning social venture, based in Nairobi, Kenya, that makes hygienic sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban slums for everyone, forever.

Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves five key steps: we build a dense network of franchised micro-entrepreneurs, who operate low-cost, high-quality waterless sanitation facilities called Fresh Life, as small businesses. 
We provide critical support services – such as access to finance, training, marketing and business analytics. 
We collect the waste every day and safely remove it from the community. 

From the waste, we create high-quality organic agricultural inputs that will reverse the trend of declining yields and increasing costs for farmers. 

We are currently launching our first agricultural products, a solid-form organic fertilizer called Evergrow, and a liquid organic fertilizer called Liquidgrow.

Role & Responsibilities: Sanergy is looking for experienced sales agronomists who can market our organic fertilizer products and complete sales with farmers. 
This role will require building a broad pipeline of sales opportunities, and closely following up with farmers to turn them into loyal customers. 
We are looking for people who have experience understanding farmers’ problems and promoting products as solutions. 
We are looking for people who have previous experience selling and marketing agricultural inputs.
Experience with organic products is a plus. 
We seek both full-time and commission-based sales agronomists.
